Laparoscopic nephrectomy is a new procedure in which the entire kidney is removed introducing it in an Endopouch and, after morcellation pulled out through a 12 mm port. After an initial experimental experience, in our Institute we have performed one laparoscopic nephrectomy for left pyelonephritic kidney and ureteral reflux. The operation required the positioning of 5 trocars and 4 hours for its execution. The discharge of the patient was possible four days after.
